Criminal Minds to End With Season 15

Criminal Minds  Twitter

The long-running CBS show is concluding with upcoming season 15, the network announced Thursday - and an "epic final season" is promised.

"It is the quintessential CBS hit". "It speaks to everything we do best, which is air quality television".

"It's really bittersweet, but I'm so, so grateful to CBS for giving us this heads-up", showrunner Erica Messer told TVLine about the final season news.

The show was one of the last CBS dramas to be renewed last season, ultimately receiving a truncated 15-episode order for Season 14. It kicked off this year with its 300th episode, which picked up from the season 13 cliffhanger when two members of the BAU were captured by cult leader Benjamin Merva (Michael Hogan). Casting details are still being worked out, but Messer is hoping to bring back some memorable unsubs as well as cast members for the final run (Shemar Moore is still in town filming S.W.A.T., just in case you were wondering).

U.S. cancer death rate has declined for 25 years
Lung cancer deaths among men declined 48 precent from 1990 to 2016 and dropped 23 percent for women from 2002 to 2016. And when they are confronted by cancer, they often don't have the access to the latest treatments, Paskett explained.

"I am very hopeful that we can honor all of those characters who have been beloved and with this team, with the audience for years, but I don't know what that's going to look like; I don't know the logistics of anything or the story".

Even so, Messer expects the series finale to be a "tearjerker". NCIS, Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order: SVU are the only live-action, scripted series now on air that have lasted longer. "So my guess is tearjerker more than anything else, that's how I'd describe it".

The Criminal Minds team will film the final 10 episodes this spring to film straight through after Season 14 is completed.
